Classic tale, and pleasant illustrations. One caution I would add: at least in the Kindle version of this text, many of the characters come out garbled, replaced by other characters which look similar. It is still readable, but for those looking for the pure Kindle reading experience, you might want to give this a pass, unless for the purely collecting or historical purpose.

The house that Jack built!
Delightful! It's been years since I've seen this little poem and I've missed it!
My thanks to whoever it is who owns the volume and had it digitized so the rest of us could enjoy it!

The price on the inside cover was $650. I envy whoever it was who had the money to buy this masterpiece, and thank you for sharing it with The Teeming Millions!
